Tear Trough Fillers

It’s hard to feel good when you don’t feel you look that way on the outside. As we age, one of the changes which is commonly noticed is the appearance and gradual worsening of dark circles under the eyelids and bags under the eyes. This occurs due to the thinning of the overlying skin and soft tissue over the bony orbital rim.

The tear trough is the area below your eye which when appearing hollow can make you look tired even when you are well rested.

We use a tear trough treatment to correct this which plumps up the treated area leaving you looking fresher and younger. There is an almost immediate improvement with a reduction in the depth and width of the tear trough itself.

FAQs

What is dermal filler?

Hyaluronic acid fillers are made of a sugar that occurs naturally in the body. Popular brands include Juvederm, Restylane, Fillers can be thin and slightly thicker in consistency. They can fill both shallow areas, such as fine lines above the lips, and deeper folds, like those around the nose. Hyaluronic Acid fillers are also mostly dissolvable and can be removed with an injectable enzyme known as Hyaluronidase

How does it work?

In your late 20’s, the body stops producing collagen and elastin, the two proteins that work together to keep tissue firm and skin elastic, without these two proteins, the body begins to display the typical signs of ageing. Dermal fillers are popular and versatile anti-ageing injectable treatment that volumize, plumps, and lifts the skin leaving it contoured, smooth, and youthful. Injectables attract water to plump up the skin. As a result, trouble spots nearly disappear.

How long does it last?

Injectable filler is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. The results vary from several months to over a year. Some research shows that repeated injections may help stimulate the body’s own natural production of collagen.
